I’ve never been set up before. A little bit because I think my friends and family are a scared of me….and mostly because I usually meet a lot of men, and it would be like taking candy from a child.
Based on this experience, I have to tell all the single ladies out there, ‘Blind Dates (set up by friends) are the way to go.’ Your friends would never set you up with a psycho, so it’s a pretty safe bet.
As for my experience:
I get to the restaurant fashionably late, and BD is waiting for me. It seems that my dear friend forgot to mention one key fact about BD, his enormous size. The man is a giant. He is at least 6”5, and ridiculously muscular. Beside my petite frame he looked like the incredible hulk. Quite good looking, with green eyes, well dressed, let’s face it ladies, first impressions are the key, and besides his mammoth size (he can’t help his genetics) he passed with flying colors. At the restaurant he was very charming, and sweet. But it sort of felt like an interview, Do I like kids, what am I doing right now, Where do I see myself in five years, What Kind of foods do I like. I didn’t feel like he was grilling me, but it was definitely the 20/20. And sadly there were no butterflies. Also missing was the clever Harry met Sally verbiage. There were also little things that came up, like how he doesn’t like people cooking curry at home (um I’m Indian we love cooking at home!) and the man doesn’t dance, doesn’t like soca, doesn’t like latin music….
So perhaps you can all get on the band wagon and call me too picky, but I like to think of myself as a lady who knows her mind….and whose one great quality is being able to tell the difference between what she wants, and what she doesn’t…
So rather than lead him on, I don't think there'll be a second date....
Now how do I get someone to break it to him??
